In order to "imt)re, 'dtearly u pen tile nlinds of the stndents tmw voting for the state legislature is carried on, a ticket was put into the field and voted upon. The two parties having c,lndidates in the fiehl, were represented by two divisions of the school room. \\;re need not state that this was an excellent object lesson in Civil Government and that it was ap- preciated as much by the ladies as by the gentlemen. Hugh Murray explained the two methods proposed by the old parties for tile selection of a candi- date for the U. S. Senate. Hugh's explanation was a very good one. Come rgain as a participator, Hugh. M. I'. Murray and Rev. Hen- nessy with family, were listeners to-day. We did uot get the op. portunity to call upon these gen- tlenten for a talk. Mrs. McGrady's name was added to the list this day. Owing to Mr. Beattie's absence from our school, several persons attended for a day or two withont register- ing.

Patrick put in all appearance in the forenoon. \\;\re hadnot expected him till the fi)llowing week. After having lllade a tour through the room. shaken hands with a few scores of teachers, he settled down to work. He delivered an hour's Ialk in the formroon on the subject, Gram. mar. ]n the afternoon one hour was devoted to the reading, or more correctly speaking to the discussion ot a paper on tile "Mind." The following aIe only a few of the short, crisp senteuees uttered by Mr. Patrick: "An ounce of living teacher is worth a ton of dead text books." "The one prudence at the teach- er is coucentratiou."--Emerson. "The school is only a means to an end." "The world owes nothing to its idlers." "Talking teachers will put brightest children to sleep: might as well put them in boxes, intellectually." "If you fail to get the attention of your pupils, you are a colnplete fail!fie." "Phere is nothing in nature for a dodger to hide himself behind." You can not get away from yourself, yourself follows you." "You can fill a child with facts until it becomes a. fool. The big- ges fool I ever saw was a graduate of Harvard." > "A community often applauds when it ought to censure. The man who does the least frequently holds on the longest." "The careiul copyingby the tlildren of one of Garfield's or Lincoln's speeches, is worth from one to twenty lessons from Pat. tick's Essetltials of English," The full force of these utter. anees can, 0f OUl'$e appreciated in their lated position, no1' spoken by any one else than Mr. I3atrick, carry the weight with them they do falliug from His to two ritten productions of some kind every week, less talking about the dry bones of Grammar, lnore language science in tile teacher's store house of kuowledge.

It read as follows: We, the undersihmed conlnlittee, in the behalf of the Clinton Co. teachers, respectfully submit the following: Resolved, That conscious of the many educational benetits we have derived from Mr. Henninger'sin. strttction this week, we most sin. cerely tender hiln our thanks, as- suring that our thoughts will fol- low him into his new field of la- bor. His untiring zeal and un- flagging interest in behalf of his students, in colmection with a vivid perception of the most mod- crrl educationM thoughts have been of incalculable benetit tu us. May his success as Institute in- structor meet with due al)t)reeia- tion in our neighboring counties. We trust to see his smiling face again among us in the near future. r, ; ( } A. t.

Guy, of Etfing. ham, came into town this morn- ing and after a short rest wended his the school house, fits elastic step and erect carriage, told the early arrivals that he was fully equil)ped for g week's hard work. The branches assigned him are: History, ArithDetic  Readi ad Physics. PromtlF a nin o'c]0ck he took charge of tle arithmetic class, at(i witl his uual vim impressed Ul)Oll the teacher's minds, the care- ful accoupting for every mirmte spent in the class morn. Nor q0 his actiot)s make a mockery of his word.. His idea in tea(hive is to keep the' utilitarian side of the subject in hand constantly before his students. "Less technicality and more practical work," is his motto. In this he tallows in the footsteps of his predecessor, Mr. Henninger. Miss Martha Buck came on the last train in the aiternoon. She will take charge of the Grammar class to morrow lnorning. For the first time since his last illness Mr. Beattie appeared among his teachers this m()rning. His appearance was the signal for a hearty applause. Owing to his weakness he remained only a short time. Among other things he announced that he would renew the certificates of all teachers who in the county last year. ly slight changes were made m the program, the mothods of instruction are about the same as last week's. The following persons visited us Reds. Walker and Hennessy, Miss Blanche Weber, Miss Grace Crichfield and Arthur Oehler, of the Trenton S:m Mr. Oehler delivered a briet talk in the forenoon on some of the means to improve the financial condition oI our teachers. We are gladto note that he steered clear of the ohl chestnut, "'the no. bility of tho teacher's vocation." This beautiful phrase has palled upon our taste, an aavance at salaries would be moe appreciable. TUESDAY.

THE :STRIKE OVER.  2esterday morning our miners, that is, tho majority of them, who have been ant since May I, went to wore again, feeling convinced that ?rolongation of the trike had better in store for them. If anything has been gained or them, nobody knows it. One thing must be said for our miners as a class, and it gives us pleasure to say it namely, that they were on their good behavior during the entire two months they were out. They would quietly, but with de- termined faces, walk our streets. convere quietly among themselves and imve evy tittle to say to otheru. This was quite in contrast to the rioting and destruction ot property going on at some other places. We hope they will now have steady.employment, at living wages, and that they witl study" the hiatory, as well as note the usual ending oi all strikes, before enter. ing tlpon another one. &trainer SchoOl!
